About the Book: The Aryavarta Chronicles Book 1: Govinda

Aryavarta-the ancient realm of the Noble. for generations, the Firstborn, descendants of Vasishta Varuni and protectors of the Divine Order on earth, have dominated here. for just as long, the Angirasa family of Firewrights, weapon-makers to the kings and master inventors, has defied them. In the aftermath of the centuries-long conflict between the two orders, the once-united empire of Aryavarta lies splintered, a shadow of its former glorious self. Now, the last Secret Keeper of the Firewrights is dead, killed by a violent hand, and the battle for supreme power in the empire is about to begin. But who holds the key to the fantastic and startling knowledge of the Firewrights, which in the wrong hands will bring doom upon the empire? And does Govinda Shauri, cowherd-turned-prince and now Commander of the armies of Dwaraka, have it in him to confront the dark secrets of his past and discover the true meaning of being Arya, of being noble?

About the Author: Krishna Udayasankar

Krishna Udayasankar is a graduate of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore, and holds a PhD in Strategic Management from the Nanyang Business School, Singapore, where she presently works as a lecturer. Govinda, Krishnas bestselling debut novel and the first in the Aryavarta Chronicles series of mytho-historical novels, received critical acclaim. She is also the author of Objects of Affection, a full-length collection of poetry (Math Paper Press, 2013) and is an editor of Body Boundaries: The Etiquette Anthology of Womens Writing (The Literary Centre, Forthcoming, 2013). When she is not watching Rajinikanth movies first-day, first-show, complete with applause and whistles, or hanging out with her fictional characters, Krishna can be found with her family, which includes two book-loving Siberian Huskies, Boozo and Zana.
